Message from the Student Volunteering Chair

Being a Student Volunteer is a great way to enter the HCI research and practitioners community, meet other students in your field, and attend the premier conference in HCI in Australia. The Student Volunteers Program will give you experience not just of OZCHI but also how a conference is run.

We seek to include students with diverse backgrounds and interests in HCI, so sign up as a Student Volunteer and help us make the OZCHI'08 conference a super one!

About the Student Volunteer Program

As a student volunteer, you will be part of a team that makes the conference happen and you gain free access to programs and events seen by conference attendees (excluding the conference dinner). However, student volunteers are responsible for their own housing and travel to and from the conference.


Student volunteers must be undergraduate, Master's, or Ph.D. students enrolled part-time or full-time at some point in 2008. All students, regardless of discipline, are encouraged to apply. No experience is required. We are looking for enthusiastic, intelligent, reliable people. Student volunteers must be available for the full duration of the conference (incl. workshops and tutorials 8 & 9th Dec), and are expected to commit to at least 20 volunteer hours of work during the conference.


Whether you're already pursuing a related degree or career, or just hoping to find out if any of the research and industries represented at OZCHI are right for you, we encourage you to apply. We look forward to welcoming you to OZCHI'08, and hope you will join us for a great student volunteer experience!

To apply, email the student volunteer chair ( with your contact details (email, mobile), your institution, your area of research, a resume and the reasons why you would like to be a student volunteer.

Applications will close on November 10th 2008. However, notifications are ongoing, so submit early to guarantee your position.
